Consistently good food served all day at comfortably modern dining pub
The good pub guide review
With all of northern Snowdonia within easy reach from here, this snug former wheelwright's cottage is not the most obvious pub choice hereabouts. Yet it is one of the best. Behind a modest-looking whitewashed exterior, the spacious yet intimate lounge bar has a mix of beams, rustic wooden tables and chairs, an open woodburning stove and fresh flowers. The choice of real ales on handpump frequently features local breweries Conwy and Purple Moose as well as Celt Experience from Caerphilly, plus 19 decent wines by the glass, several malt whiskies and good coffee. Food is king here, however: there is a lot of it to choose from and it is popular ' it's best to book a table in advance. There's a pleasant mix of seats and tables under parasols outside.
The good pub guide food review
Using the best local, seasonal produce, the particularly good food has a decidedly meaty focus, but there are vegetarian/vegan options. Typical dishes include sandwiches (until 5pm), crispy confit duck leg with peas bonne femme and celeriac and white truffle purée, roasted pork belly with crispy quail egg, seared king scallops and butternut squash purée, beetroot pannacotta with goats cheese mousse, baby herb salad and candied walnut crumb, Conwy beer-battered haddock and chips, pan-seared stone bass with Thai-style coconut and king prawn laksa, vermicelli noodles and braised pak choi, chargrilled 10oz rib-eye steak with chips and café de paris butter, and puddings.
